Add a little tang to recipes on National Mustard Day



French’s  first introduced its Classic Yellow Mustard in 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair. While mustard remains the most popular condiment for hot dogs, it’s a secret cooking ingredient that many home chefs are just now starting to share. This year, in honor of National Mustard Day, Aug. 3, use a bit of mustard to add more flavor to your favorite everyday recipes.

Here are some summer recipes from French’s.
